How to get the Wowza Load Test Tool

Wowza Media Systems™ provides a Load Test Tool that can be used to generate load on a single server that's running Wowza Streaming Engine™ software to test configuration and performance. This tool is designed to create a linear load on a single media server for basic load testing purposes and doesn't simulate real-world streaming. This tool only supports RTMP and Apple HLS at this time.

  • For use with Wowza Streaming Engine media server software.
  • The Load Test Tool 4.5 supports RTMP and Apple HLS. Earlier versions only support RTMP. If you have an earlier version and would like to simulate Apple HLS connections, please use the link below to request the new version.
The Load Test Tool requires a Subscription or Perpetual Wowza Streaming Engine software license. To request the Load Test Tool, click the link at the bottom of this page. In order to get the Load Test Tool, you must electronically sign a Load Testing Software Agreement.
